Looking good and very effective, although I have to agree with your comments about the hose. Is the car an old Humber?

Seconded; both remarks. How about a thick piece of cotton thread painted semi-gloss black? That would be more like a 2MM scale hosepipe, I think.

Good spot, David. I reckon it might be a Humber Imperial :hmmm:

Or a Super Snipe?

The Table-Top Railway is an attempt to create, in British 'N' gauge,  a 'semi-scenic' railway in the old-fashioned style, reminiscent of the layouts of the 1920s to the 1950s.

Hi Martin,

Love the pics and the pumpkins, great idea.

I wouldn't bother with the hose. Being a gardener for a living it would just be in the way to trip over and if it was on it would just make everything a muddy mess for the young lad working, his dad would trail mud onto the path, the lad's girlfriend would get wet potentially accidentally on purpose and chaos ensues. Sorry, just trying to be prototypical  :D

Love the detail, great stuff.

Cheers weave  :beers:

just a little work on Tregonning in this hot weather.
Iíve been working on the short road leading down past the pub to the creamery gates.
It was a bit dull and uninteresting so Iíve added a seat and a little front garden (and railings) for the house next door to the pub.


Old Mrs Baggs has run out of puff and is taking a breather on the pub bench. Mrs Thomas has stopped for a bit of gossip.
I think the old barrell with the bush growing in it works ok. What about the lad at the house door ?  Obviously his bicycle needs a touch up!
I think a couple more little folk will help. Maybe someone posting a letter and someone about to enter the phone box.
Iíve left the whild card fold on the pub corner as I thought it looked ok but maybe it does need to be greened up.
Chris, you probably recognise the lorry?
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

I used to be indecisive - now I'm not - I don't think.

Thank you, Martin, for this really excellent photo. of a lovely scene full of detail and interest. Yes, the lorry is one of a pair of handpainted "Castle Estates" one. (Mine can be seen with a timber load -- which yours must have delivered by now -- next to the loading area in Cant Cove goods yard.)

You just need to add some 2mm Scale cats and dogs on the layout to add to all the people.

The visiting Perthshire railway preservationists have chartered a GWS ex-BR WR 14xx plus BR / Hawksworth autocoach to take them from Cant Cove to Tregonning for a trip around the creamery then a pub lunch, followed by a local tour in a luxury "Seagull" motor coach before returning in the autotrain. Cant Cove's photographer and his assistant will take photos. of their arrivals and departure, there.

The "Castle Dairies" (part of the "Castle Estates") have ordered some pale blue liveried milk tankers as they want to send some of their milk to Tregonning Creamery, in future, for making Cornish clotted cream. 8-)

Fantastic photo's Martin, loving the detail you are adding, between you and Phoenix, these box layouts are a treat!

Is Mrs Baggs first name Poly by any chance?  :)

The visitors from Perthshire were raving about their visit and pub lunch, topped off perfectly by the mode of transport, most of them had not experienced a 14xx before, even the strong GWR group that the PRPS boasts
